Brilliant Idea

What a unique idea--to let customers in on what goes on behind the scenes and info on new and old products and how the business works! I go to TJ's even more than I used to now and look for products mentioned on the podcast. I've shopped at many of their stores in two different states since 1977. The staff everywhere has always been friendly and the stores are clean and welcoming. Listen to the podcast and expand your eating enjoyment.

So good!!

Love that this is not a commercial for weekly products (their fearless flyer does that), it’s more like a documentary radio series on who they are, what makes them so special, and most importantly how stuff gets to the stores. All are extremely interesting stories.

My new Car Talk podcast

Hawaii people love Trader Joe’s. LOVE. It’s very unlikely we’ll ever get our own Hawaii store, so it’s a favorite destination when ever any Hawaii local travels to the “mainland.”

My parents collect the store reusable bags. They visited a store, can’t recall the city/state they were visiting, that didn’t have the unique bag for their city/state. The store mailed a goody box to my parents in Hawaii. It was packed with goodies. Totally beyond anything any other store would do. I share this story with everyone to convey how beautiful Trader Joe’s crew members are.

Getting to the title of my review. I loved and still love the Car Talk podcast. When I listened to Car Talk, I learned something, I felt great after listening to it, and just adored Click and Clack. I feel the same way about the Inside Trader Joe’s podcast. I feel really good about people, about community, about the goodness out there, after I listen to this. Am I being dramatic lol, maybe, but it’s all good. Can’t wait to travel to the mainland to visit Trader Joe’s again!
